Apple Pay is here!

Apple Pay logo

Simple, Secure, Convenient and it's COOL!
Use your iPhone to pay for your purchases.

  • Simpler payments. Once you have your debit card stored in the iPhone “Wallet” app, you need only hold the phone near a reader, approve the transaction with your fingerprint using iPhone’s Touch ID, and the payment is processed within a couple of seconds. The process is simpler than the traditional debit card swiping process, which typically includes (a) swiping a card and then selecting debit or credit, (b) providing a separate identification, and (c) affixing a signature.
  • Secure. Since a debit card does not need to be present, there’s less likelihood of a stolen number. Moreover, Apple does not use the debit card number for processing the payment but uses a token called the “device account number” to process the transaction, which further reduces the chances of the debit card details getting stolen. Apple Pay is an implementation of the EMVCo specification that is considered by many industry experts as the most secure payment mechanism.
  • Greater privacy. Apple will not track your transactions and store the data. This offers more privacy. Also, the use of device account numbers versus the debit card makes the transaction even more private with the retailers as they do not see your name and other details, such as the billing address.
  • Lower risk. Large retailers like Target and Home Depot have recently experienced debit card breaches. Apple Pay eliminates that by avoiding the use of the card details as part of the transaction. With Apple Pay, the device account number, along with a transaction-specific dynamic security code, is used to process the payment. So the actual credit or debit card numbers are never shared by Apple with retailers or transmitted with the payment.
  • Better experience. Apple is known for creating superlative user experiences. Apple Pay is no exception. Published reports and available videos agree, the service is easy to use. The service automatically selects the default card from Passbook for payments, which can easily be overridden with a swipe.

Look for this app, Apple Wallet logo on your iPhone, or other approved device, and simply follow the prompts.

Scams 

picture of a checkbook

There are a lot of tax scams around this time of year. Please be careful and verify anything that looks strange.

Please don't fall for the "Lottery Winner" scam or the "I'll send you more money than necessary for the EBAY purchase. You keep the difference, for your trouble" scam.

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably IS too good to be true.

If you have any questions about a check you've received, please bring it to the credit union. We can help.

As a reminder, we will never call or text and ask for personal information, like your account number or social security number.

Credit Score Myths

Want to get a handle on your credit? Well, first you’ll have to learn what factors impact your credit score. Unfortunately, there are a number of myths that can cause your brain to spin like the Tasmanian Devil from information overload.

 

Here are some common credit score myths:

1. My employment history will make or break my credit

Your employment history has nothing to do with your credit score, but some lenders may review it to determine if you are stable enough to repay a loan. Frequent job changes or layoffs may indicate otherwise.

Why Join a Credit Union?

Founded on the basic democratic premise of the cooperative movement, credit unions believe that access to low-cost financial services is critical to the health and stability of ordinary citizens. In fact, about 100 million Americans trust that their credit union will provide the services to improve their financial well being.

Credit union membership offers many benefits. Services offered range from simple savings to home equity loans to IRAs. Study after study has revealed that on average, credit unions provide the best financial offerings with fewer fees, lower rates on loans and higher rates on savings. Credit unions continually score higher than all other financial institutions in consumer satisfaction surveys.

Credit unions strive to deliver the best service possible to their most important asset - their members.

 

 

 

 

Credit Union vs Banks. Why Credit Unions Aren't Banks

On the surface, credit unions seem similar to banks. Both institutions offer Checking services, Savings accounts, and Auto loans, but that's where the similarities end.
Credit unions are not-for-profit financial cooperatives. In essence, this means that one Member's savings becomes another Member's loan. This cooperative structure allows Northeast Family Federal Credit Union to offer highly competitive dividends and some of the lowest loan rates available.
At Northeast Family Federal Credit Union, we don't serve customers. We serve Members! And that's exactly what you become when you join: a Member and an Owner of your own financial institution.
Our Members are Owners
The Credit Union is owned entirely by its members, so there are no investors to dictate product and service decisions based on stock prices. Instead, management answers to a Board of Directors elected from the Membership and dedicated to making decisions that provide the most value to all members.
Members are the Credit Union's most valued asset, and we treat them as such. For twelve continual years, credit unions outrank banks in consumer satisfaction, according to the annual American Banker/Gallup Survey.
When you join Northeast Family Federal Credit Union you become a part of a family where the credit union tradition of 'People Helping People' is alive and well. We invite you to become part of an organization that has dedicated itself to serving Members since 1938.
